Investing in People
At Thomson Trees Ltd, we are always looking to improve our standards and therefore actively encourage training and development for the whole team. In fact in the past 9 months alone Thomson Trees Ltd have invested over £8000 on training. We believe that as well as making our teams safer, and more proficient, it also enhances the service we are able to offer to you, our client.
Having a well trained and motivated team has also helped us gain accrediations such as Arb Approved and Trustmark, which would have been a far greater challenge without a dedicated work force behind us.
A friendly and approachable person.
I setup TT in 2008 as I’ve been passionate about trees since I was a kid.
I’ve had a varied career – I qualified as a rural chartered surveyor and then moved to Malaysia and worked for a shipping company for 10 yrs. I briefly worked in the travel industry and then got into trees.
I also run a livestock farm which is currently going through a lot of change including significant commercial tree planting.
I have endless tree related qualifications – 13 NPTC qualifications relating to chainsaw use, climbing and forwarders, an IPAF qualification for using a MEWP and a Lantra qualification as a Professional Tree Inspector.

Peter never seems to be far away from trees and forestry with most of his spare time being taken up riding and racing his mountain bike.
After studying both engineering and forestry at college Peter had a mixed career path working with smaller-scale tree surgery firms as well as a larger forest machinery company, servicing and repairing firewood processors. Peter has transferred his impressive engineering skills to Thomson Trees which means our equipment here stays in good working order which helps to keep operations running smoothly.
Peter has recently undertaken training to gain additional qualifications in climbing and aerial rescue, chainsaw use up a tree, IPAF 3b, base machine with forwarder and skidder, and first aid in forestry.
